… Judge Lord Kinclaven said driving while using a mobile phone "has the capacity to wreck lives and literally kill".Check.
He said: "Use of a hand-held mobile phone is in itself an unlawful act.He says "unlawful act" as if it were a bad thing?!
"The fact an offender is avoidably distracted by the use of a mobile phone when committing an offence of this sort will always make an offence more serious."Check.
This judge thinks the way I do. I attribute it to my Canadian British Judeo-Christian upbringing, rooted in the notions of personal responsibility and respect for the law.
Compare/contrast this with the wooly thinking that passes for left-wing compassion these days in much of the west. Illegally in the country? No prob. You're just "undocumented". Committed several crimes/felonies? No prob. We feel your pain. Catch and release.
Can a nation that jettisons its own Judeo-Christian roots and despises its own Law long survive?
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
